The Tobacco Mosaic “Virus” is said to be the first “virus” ever discovered. The particle has even been purified and biochemically characterised.

I decided to go back to the original studies from the late 1800s and I found more than just a few problems with the claims that they found a “virus”.

It’s amazing what the germ theorists claim when Virus Mania strikes!
